I liked that feature. Fingers crossed it's just a temporary absence..

I know the second Cyclopean Depths book is imminent. Am I misremembering that there were going to be future expansion of RA as well (beyond the first 'subscription')?

Or was that just a possibility which isnt likely to happen in the near future?

I generally set my adventures in Golarion and am hoping to run a Swords and Wizardry sandbox campaign soonish using Stoneheart Valley and then Sword of Air (with probable material from Rappan Athuk and Slumbering Tsar as well as the various adventures from Quests of Doom and their other one-off modules). The Sword of Air storyline would hopefully be the main focus though.

I've found myself vacillating about where I should set it - ranging from Varisia to Rural Taldor and several places in between. I'm not stressed about the geography - I'm happy to chop and change that around substantially. I'd appreciate any suggestions as to which cultures would be a good fit though - or which would provide an interesting backdrop.

Any thoughts would be appreciated (although 'Don't use Golarion - set it in the Lost Lands' is not an option for a few years).

Cheers.

Hi Paizo people

I wonder if you could look into the above order for me? It has been pending for longer than I would have thought it would.

I've come to the view that the 'experience point budgets' of 5E are a little lightweight. Granted most of my experience is at the far end of the bellcurve (I'm currently running a 2PC game) but I have a feeling it would be worse with the more usual 4 PCs.

The two of them are now tenth level and they are routinely demolishing encounters which are "deadly" according to the DMG guidelines.

I'm converting a PF adventure and have occasionally found myself falling into the trap of relying too much on direct substitution (PF seems to me to assume a party-versus-one BBEG, whereas I think 5E works better with multiple foes). Nonetheless, even if I boost the number of enemies significantly beyond the experience point budgets suggested in the DMG, I seem to struggle to provide much of a martial challenge.

Has anyone else found the same?

I'm now habitually boosting the monsters' offensive abilities, just to provide an element of risk - nonetheless, I dont think they've ever really been at risk of defeat since around 2nd or 3rd level - the one exception was an encounter with a full-on Vampire. With such a small party, I steer clear of domination effects as a general rule - in that case though, they were hell-bent on attacking someone obviously superior to them, so I let the chips fall where they may (one of the PCs was dominated and subsequently written out of the campaign, the other fled).

Hi Paizo

I wonder if you could cancel (most of) order #3554412 for me?

As I understand it, the Paladin deck is on its way to me (or will be shortly) but the others are on backorder. I would like to still get the Paladin deck, but to cancel the other decks thanks.

I'm sure theres reasons, but this order's timeframe has been something of a disappointment - they were listed as available when I ordered them. Presumably it's a distributor issue or something, but it's a little odd since I've been able to get them from elsewhere without anything like this delay. :/

Cheers
Steve

Hi Paizo CS

I just received my subscription pre-auth email (#3565135) and there is no mention of the PF Battles promo figure. I mentioned this in the June shipping thread, but figured I'd list it here as well.

I also wanted to ask you about order #3573248 which has been pending since 19th May (I think). I was kind of expecting that to have shipped by now, or to automatically merge with my subscription order as it didnt seem to me that you'd be waiting on any of those items. Would someone mind having a look at that and pushing it out the door if it's ready to go? (I dont care if it ships separately or with this month's subscription items, but I'd like it to go sooner rather than later - if there is something holding it up (one of the PACG player mats, maybe?) then would you mind moving whatever it is to my sidecart and shipping out what's ready to go?

Finally, I wanted to touch base with you about order #3554412 (listed as pending since the 1st of May, but I think that was actually the last time you prodded it for me - from memory I ordered that back in December 2014). It seems a little odd that this hasnt shipped yet (I've ordered some of these from another site and they got them from a distributor with no trouble). Could you look into this one too? I dont really want to merge this with the subscription order (since I'm sure it's going to jinx whatever it touches) but I am keen to get these, once they are all in stock.

Thanks for your help. Hope that all makes sense.

Cheers
Steve

Hi James, I presume.

I just got my copy of Lord Of Runes and I wanted to comment on the maps at the front - I presume the Inner Sea Map facing the "novel area map" is likely to be common going forward?

First off - I love the inclusion of a map in fantasy novels. It doesn't matter how eloquent the characters are during the story when they describe the geography, nothing beats turning to the front of the book and seeing the tower of doom, right there between the hidden temple and the village of woe.

I'm also a big fan of the inner sea map facing the more detailed area pertaining to the novel. Personally, I would have liked a little dashed outline on the world map, placing the restricted area within the world context, but that may look ugly with the single colour, line drawing style, I guess.

My big criticism is that the inner sea map looks so crowded and messy. I dare say it took several iterations and there's probably all sorts of constraints I'm clueless about. Nonetheless, I think it warrants a second attempt if it's going to feature in future novels - I know the inner sea really well and that map didn't jump out as familiar to me. Nor was it a pleasure to browse through looking for landmarks.

I do like the bigger format and presumably that's part of why an inner sea map is even possible. Nonetheless, I think the one in this book is just trying a little bit too hard.

Cheers

There's a 3PP product out for 5E that uses that game's background concept and ties it to a PC's region of origin (rather than a more usual past profession). I'd like to go through the various Golarion nations and create 5E backgrounds for them and it occurred to me that there might be some value to someone in releasing it under the community use policy and making it publicly available.

That appears to be fine, as per the terms of the license, so I'm not really asking a legal question (unless it's not fine, I guess) but I wondered whether paizo would really prefer it to be used for PF-compatible games and supplements?

(I put this here instead of the 5E board as I have a similar thought with regard to 13th age and possibly numenera. Please move it to wherever it should be if you think this is the wrong place).

Amongst the various threads where it's come up over the years, print on demand hasn't ever been ruled out (as far as I'm aware) but has generally been viewed as too costly, too much hassle or not good enough quality.

I wondered if anyone had looked at that recently? Given the move into POD in the card game, perhaps there's some infrastructure there to make it easier now to facilitate RPG titles as well. I'm aware of the "compete with ourself" argument against out of print items, but what about the PDF-only items like PFS scenarios (season at a time would be ideal for me) and most especially the player guides?

No longer getting hard copies of the AP player guides, in particular is a great loss, in my view. Handing those out to provide inspiration for character generation used to be a terrific prelude to starting an AP-based campaign.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Would it be possible to add a new category to the PACG section of the store alongside accessories, class decks, etcetera labelled "Print on Demand Cards" with different listings for each errata deck, and so forth - even though they're going to link to another site?

I don't follow the blogs and message board chatter very closely and would like to know when "errata decks", cards for the various organised play seasons and so forth are available. The way I keep on top of that with your other product lines is via the respective product pages, where I look out for new preorders.

Alternately, maybe there is a list somewhere of currently available POD decks and soon to be released decks? There's a lot of value (to me, anyway) if that can be easily located on the paizo website. Presumably I can access such a list from wherever the cards are purchased from, but I have no idea how to do that (and given the infrequency of these releases, I'm no doubt going to forget every time anyhow).

Hi paizo CS people

I've made a bit of a hash of ordering over the last few weeks and ended up with a few duplicate orders, by the look.

Could you please cancel one of the #4 origins special issues and one of the cloud giant castle maps?

Cheers
Steve

I didnt want to derail another thread, but the way this is discussed has often confused me.

I've heard many people say that 5E "has no OGL" or similar (presumably, in contrast to 3.5). Am I right in my understanding that that is a misuse of terminology? As I understood things, nothing in the 3.5 core books was open game content and there wasnt a sense in which it was "released under the OGL" other than coming out at around the same time as the license did.

What 3.5 had (and PF has, for that matter) that 4E and 5E dont is a separate, standalone compatibility license (as required by the OGL - if you want to advertise your OGL product as compatible with another company's trademark).

Is my understanding correct? That people requesting "a 5E OGL" are actually looking for a compatibility license - and that the OGL is there and you can release OGL content for any game, provided you dont advertise your OGL work as compatible with said game?

I think the 4E GSL (or whatever it was) muddied the waters - it gave the impression that you need a new license with a new game. In reality, it was WotC's attempt to walk back the OGL and was intended to replace it functionally. When a new game comes out - there's no actual need for an OGL at all, since the one we have is irrevocable, courtesy of WotC.

I'd appreciate any comment from people-in-the-know. I'm not seeking any kind of legal advice, but I've begun to wonder if I've misunderstood things.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

So there hasn't been any firm announcement yet as to dates or other logistical details. However, they did announce last night that Rescue From Tyrkaven and Doom of the Sky Sword will be the first adventures to be converted to 5E.

My question is whether there'll be a hard copy option? Presumably not in the traditional sense (unless the two are bundled together, I suppose), but print on demand perhaps?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Can anyone suggest any 3PP campaign settings within the following parameters:

  • Available in hard copy format
  • Western fantasy
  • Humanocentric
  • Minimal science fiction science/fantasy elements

System isn't important, but I'm not really interested in settings too far from "standard" western fantasy.

Hi paizo

It seems to me that the confirmation email for the above order doesn't line up with the actual order in my order history.

I'm on my phone, so it's hard to check easily. However, the comics in particular seem screwy (I seem to be getting the wrong cover of issue two and to be missing one of the issue 3 covers)

My order history is a bit of a schmozzle though at the moment. Good luck to whoever draws the short straw working out what I'm supposed to be getting...

Hi Paizo people

I'm looking to buy the latest Wizkids D&D incentive figure plus the associated case, which I understand is a pre-requisite purchase.

However, the case is showing as unavailable. That seems odd, given the incentive is still in stock. Are you able to facilitate ordering of both of those for me? Or have I missed the boat, perhaps?

I wasnt sure who to direct this to - perhaps I should have posted in one of the product threads?

Cheers

I havent been keeping close tabs on the game, so I'm not sure if I understand the promo situation correctly.

If I have a sub will I (eventually) get every promo released, barring those included with the miniature packs?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Hi Paizo CS

I've recently restarted my player companion subscription (see the above order) with the hope it might be shipped as soon as possible.

There's a bunch of stuff sitting in my sidecart and I suspect that (given all the cancelling, preordering, recancelling, resubscribing and cancelling before reordering again...) your computer is going to have a mild mental breakdown when this reaches the top of the queue.

Would you be able to look through all of those items and ask the warehouse people to put whatever is ready to go in with the melee tactic toolbox? (I suspect there might be a second copy of the melee tactic toolbox, so if you could simultaneously cancel that one as well, I'd appreciate it).

Cheers

Kingmaker was obviously a hit and it's been a fair while since it was out. I haven't been following the "what's next" speculation/hint threads of late. Any chance something like this is on the cards? Tying it to exploration of a new continent is an obvious direction to go, but I'm sure there are plenty of places in the inner sea where it could work.

When I try and download tombs of golarion (and another PDF I can't remember) I get a message "Safari cannot download this file".

Anyone have any clues as to what that means? I've always just downloaded PDFs direct to my iPad before without any drama.

I don't know if it's a big deal for most people or not, and I realise the issue of "moderating" reviews is an area you'd want to tread carefully. Nonetheless, it kind of irritates me when reviewers either get stuck into a book for past actions of the publisher (or because of issues with a different book) or when people "review" a book before it's even come out.

One of the great things about the flag system is one can feel like you've "done something" without getting into an argument with the other side. At the moment, the only way to comment on a review is to reply in the product thread, which is no doubt not an ideal reaction. I'd like to be able to flag a review as either "inappropriate" in some broad way, or as being made without reading the product (and therefore not a review at all, but rather a promotion or endorsement).

As an alternative, would it be possible to "lock" the ability to post reviews until the product exists?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

It's probably not terribly important, but this cover appears to be incorrectly priced.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

I wanted to ask whoever it might be who deals with this kind of thing (Liz?) whether you'd be able to get in the 5E spell cards that Gale Force Nine have released (or are about to release maybe).

Heres one example, there are several products in the line. I couldn't find them on the paizo store.

Are you likely to stock them in the nearish future? Im keen to get them relatively soon and would prefer to buy them here, but can look elsewhere if need be.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

I'm not sure if I'm just slow to notice, but the my subscriptions page looks revamped to me. I think it's considerably more user friendly, so thanks.

I had a couple of comments, in case there are still bugs that need finding:

  • There's a little s next to my upcoming Firesoul book, indicating its a subscription copy, but not next to the other subscription items due in March.
  • Theres a note at the top which reads "Subscription shipments shown here are estimates and may change based on product availability. To change the shipping options for your subscriptions, use your My Subscriptions page." which seems odd because I'm on the page its linking to.

If this is an old change I'm only just noticing, well carry on - some of us are just slow.
If nothing's changed and I'm just losing my mind, it's probably best not to mention it...

Hi Paizo tech team.

I've just tried a few different ways of downloading the Escape From Old Korvosa PDF (AP#9). I tried from my downloads and also from the tab next to the product page (in case that was different in the eyes of the computer). I also tried both the individual chapter and the all-in-one-file versions. In all cases it hung - I clicked it once, clicked again after the mandatory ten seconds* and then clicked the "if it doesnt open automatically, click here" link.

Any chance someone can give it a prod and see if there's something other than user error causing this problem?

Cheers
Steve

*:
Just to satisfy my curiosity - why do we have to click the link once and then click it again once the file is done "personalising". Since it's always going to happen - is there any point making us click it the second time? Why not just follow one link and tell us to wait ten seconds while the watermark, etcetera is added?

Enquiring (and admittedly pretty lazy) minds want to know...


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Would anyone be able to recommend any adventure paths (or extended modules) by third party publishers?

I'm only interested in them if they are available in hardcopy.

I'm also open to any fantasy RPG system - I suspect Pathfinder will be the most numerous (hence posting it here) but if there's anything around for other systems, that would be interesting to hear too.

Thanks, in advance for any suggestions.

Hi CS people

I'm doing a bit of price comparison and just added the upcoming D&D miniatures case + promo incentive to my shopping cart. However, it is offering me the choice to ship it Standard mail, which is presumably a glitch rather than a shift in international shipping policy.

Would you be able to look over that (and perhaps get the tech team to prod what needs prodding) so that I can get a bit of an estimate on what the actual cost will be? I'm hesitant to rely on the priority price estimate as the case has presumably had the wrong weight/size entered.

Given I'm picking this up as part of a group, I want to be able to let them know how much they'll be up for ahead of time.

Cheers
Steve


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Is there any chance you'll open a case or two and make some of these available as singles purchases?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Hi Paizo people

I'm not sure if it's an issue or not, but my subscription shipment was split between two packages and the PFACG promo cards are listed in a different package to the adventure card deck.

It's probably no big deal, but ss they're generally packaged with the decks, I thought I'd mention it in case you were about to accidentally ship two copies.

Everything else seems as per normal.

In all the various "what's your favourite AP?" threads over the years, I've been struck by the fact that the ones I rate highest were the first few I read back when it was all new and exciting. Probably a case of becoming spoilt/jaded, I'd guess.

I still really like the recent ones (barring Iron Gods, which I think was done well but is not my cup of tea) but none have grabbed me the way those first few (Crimson Throne, Legacy of Fire and Rise of the Runelords) did.

Is that true for others? Are your favourites generally amongst the first few you read?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Has there been any word from Erik (or Vic, maybe?) as to how this product line has been received and whether it's likely to persist?

Have sales lived up to expectations? Are we going to see a second series? Is the mooted subscription service through paizo.com going to materialise?

I tried this with some skepticism, but have really enjoyed listening to them on the way to and from work. I'm hoping there's more on the way.

Has anyone given much thought to this? I'm looking for something quick and easy - currently I'm using "half the DC plus four" which seems to give me a ballpark decent figure.

I wondered if someone had worked out something a little more rigorously though.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Suppose you had a fighter(4)/warlock(7)/wizard(5)/cleric/(4) - for the purposes of cantrip scaling what level would they be when casting warlock, wizard or cleric cantrips?

Would it change if they'd chosen the eldritch knight path as a fighter?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

It seems to us that the only RAW way to get proficiency with shields is to also be proficient with medium armor. This also seems a little silly (to me at least), since the concept of a light armor wearing, shield wielding person doesnt seem outlandish.

Would you allow someone to "trade" a skill proficiency for shield proficiency (either a background proficiency or a feat-gained skill/tool proficiency)? Would you instead invent a feat (proficiency with shields plus a +1 to dex/str perhaps)? Or would you just insist they learn how to use medium armor as well and then choose not to? Or is there, in fact, a way to get shield proficiency without medium armor proficiency we havent noticed?

Hi again Paizo people

Thanks for so swiftly attending to my recent request and thanks to Will and his team for shipping everything out so rapidly too - you guys are the best. :)

I have one or two other 'tidying up' things, if you wouldnt mind (there's no urgency here).

Order 3277284 was for the PF Legends CD#4 and it appears to still be pending, which seems odd to me, since I thought it would go out with this month's subscriptions. Would you mind giving that a nudge if something has gone astray? Sending it on its own priority mail is fine.

Looking through my pre-orders, would you be able to cancel the following two items:

Jade Regent Dice
Art of Improvisation for Game Masters

and the PF tales subscription.

Cheers

Any suggestions for good RPG shops, comic shops, etcetera? (Open on Saturday and Sunday would be best). :)


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

I'd be interested to hear any thoughts (or where people think it sits on the ambiguous-obvious scale).


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Hi paizo

I'm pretty sure this is a well known issue, but just in case (or as a datapoint for investigation)...

The above preorder was placed to ship priority mail. During the checkout process, the site told me it would be added to my sidecart to be shipped with a future subscription shipment. The confirmation page, however said it would ship by standard mail.

My preference would be priority mail (either on its own or with a subscription shipment). I'm 100% sure that was showing as the shipping method before I placed the order.

Cheers
Steve


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

I don't know if this points to a bigger problem, but this is listed as a preorder and you've already sent me a copy (it arrived yesterday).


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

A friend wants to play a gnoll in an upcoming game (likely to be 5E). It's a long way off, so at this stage I'm just conceptualising rather than putting hard numbers on a page. Anyone have any thoughts on how you'd create a gnoll race for 5E?

I figured dexterity and constitution bonuses and probably a penalty to Charisma.

Definitely a scent-based ability (probably equivalent to short-range darkvision and a bonus to tracking).

I was considering a bite attack as an option for a bonus action.

Anyone have any suggestions or thoughts?


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Could I suggest paizo consider disabling the "my subscriptions" page during subscription runs? (At least until it doesn't get so confused, anyhow).

Obviously the current month is worse than usual, but every month there are numerous posts (and presumably emails and phone calls) from people struggling to make sense of the schedule as it jumps around, "postpones" stuff and this month seems to be double counting everything.

The little "this may be displaying in accurately" message doesn't seem to help much - maybe if it just displayed a list of active subscriptions and a link to our "order history" page it would cut down on the angst.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

Hi paizo people.

I realise this week is not the best time to be asking for corner cases to be looked into, but I did think I'd mention this issue, recently raised in the website forum again since it's come up in the recent kerfuffle and perhaps when the dust has settled you might be able to go back and look at orders: 3189883, 3206195 and whichever order had the PACG mat - I can't seem to find it in my order history. I had figured that the last two would have gone with my subscription shipment, but they seemed to have been treated individually.

I really want the system to default to USPS priority all the time. Generally it does that, but every now and again when a package is split, the computer seems to decide to send some of them priority and some via a cheaper method - my main problem is that cheaper often means both slower and handled with less care.

It's not really a huge deal except that often it's the collector edition comics which are being singled out for standard mail - and those are pretty much the only ones I actually care about getting here in as-pristine-condition-as-possible, although I want everything as quickly as possible.

One possible source of error (either mine or the computer's) is when I've placed a preorder or backorder. It seems to me that those orders often end up going standard mail, even though whenever given the chance, I try and select USPS priority.

I realise you've got more pressing things on your minds at the moment, but I'd appreciate it if someone could have a look at the above orders sometime and see if I've done something wrong or if the computer is not handling things as it should. I didnt used to have this issue before the most recent website upgrade, but since then it's happened probably half a dozen times.

Cheers
Steve


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Maps, Tales Subscriber

I seem to remember that I used to be able to set USPS Priority Mail as my default option but since the most recent website upgrade, the site seems to automatically default to the cheapest possible.

I can change it manually, but I've had some situations (I think) where I placed an order with a couple of items shipping USPS Priority and when one was delayed for some reason the rest of the order shipped standard mail.

I'd like to be able to tell the system to default to quickest possible, even though I'll adjust it from time to time. Can I still do that?

The various links right at the top of the page are now stacked vertically, whereas they used to be horizontal across the top of the page. (Hello, Steve Geddes | Sign Out | My Account |... and so forth).

I've kind of been assuming it's a glitch that will be fixed soon (I think it changed to that format a week or two ago) but now I'm wondering if it's a change.

I get a similar thing if I follow a users profile (posts, threads, private messages, etcetera are all piled one above the other, rather than side by side as they used to be).

I haven't listened to it, but its getting pretty decent reviews. Plus it's hard to go past the price.

(I posted this in off-topic as well, since I figured there'd be interest from some non D&D fans. Apologies for the two threads).
